Cleaner Snowmobile Technology P2 Options
Clean Snowmobiles: P2 in Action
What snowmobile dealers, tour operators, fleet managers,
and snowmobilers can do TODAY to reduce the pollution from snowmobile
fleets and personal snowmobiles.**
- Adjust the snowmobiles for local conditions and altitudes, including:
- Use the proper jet size for the elevation. Carburetor jets
with smaller orifices should be used at higher elevations. Use of
the smaller jets results in more complete fuel combustion.
- Adjust Clutches. Installation of proper jets for higher
elevation also improves engine performance, and snowmobile clutches
should be adjusted to match performance.
- Keep the engine tuned properly.
- Use oxygenated fuels, such as 10 percent ethanol blend, in the snowmobile
to reduce emissions.
- Use synthetic low-particulate lube oils to reduce particulates and
- Use synthetic biodegradable lube oils to reduce potential impacts
to health and the environment.

you can do to reduce snowmobile emissions even more
the development of cleaner snowmobile technology and sell, purchase or rent
cleaner machines as they become available to the public.
Snowmobile manufacturers are introducing cleaner, four-stroke snowmobiles
to the marketplace. Selling, purchasing and/or renting these snowmobiles,
creating a market for cleaner machines, is the most important thing you
can do to reduce the impact of snowmobiles on the environment.
|The SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge is a student design competition
formed to encourage the development of cleaner and quieter snowmobile technology
while simultaneously providing a hands-on educational experience to college
students. This program works find new methods to prevent pollution from
